Sanwo-Olu urges pilgrims to be good ambassadors
The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs, Mrs. Adebunmi Elizabeth Adekanye, during the prayer session and seminar culminating in months of preparations for the Easter pilgrimage to Jerusalem, at the Chapel of Christ the Light, Alausa enjoined pilgrims to show humility, humaneness, empathy, dignity, dedication and sincere spirituality during the pilgrimage rites and forever afterwards.
“Right here in Nigeria, the pilgrims must reflect on why they are leaving families, friends, other loved ones, homes and work behind to make this important journey.”
She urged them to start the process of spiritual rejuvenation and growth, along with prayers and supplications, right here in Nigeria.
Adekanye advised pilgrims to walk on the path of Jesus Christ so that their prayers and supplications would easily be answered.
She implored them to pray for sustenance of peace and growth of Lagos State, the nation, themselves, families, communities and Christendom.
The officiating Minister, Rev. Olu Ayo Oladotun in his sermon, advised the intending pilgrims to separate themselves from habits and people that would diminish their spirituality.
He said they must do away with behaviours like drunkenness and anger so that they can assume higher level of spirituality which is the main purpose of their pilgrimage.”
